Features of plant rationing by crop
Peach "White Swan" is a very grateful fruit crop, which responds to good and competent care with excellent harvests of juicy, very tasty and healthy fruits. The plant can dump excess ovaries on its own, however, sometimes this is not enough to get the most productive and healthy crown.
The annual rationing of the plant with ovaries or flowers stimulates the productivity of the plant and allows you to get the highest quality crop of peaches.
A fairly effective and easy way to standardize ovaries on peach trees is to use nitrogen fertilizers, which should be applied with abundant watering of the plant at the rate of at least 30 g per square meter of crown projection. Such an event must be carried out immediately after mass flowering.
A more laborious, but at the same time reliable way is manual rationing of the crop. It is carried out exclusively after the natural shedding of ovaries, which occurs in June. Using clean and sharp scissors or a secateurs, the ovaries are removed, as a result of which no more than two of the most developed ovaries should fall on each inflorescence. Performing this procedure, it should be remembered that for each thinned ovary should be at least twenty healthy leaves.
With the correct and timely implementation of standardization, the load on the crown of the plant is significantly reduced, and the fruits will be larger and more commercial.
After rationing, the fruit tree will experience quite natural stress for some time. Experts recommend that the processing of fruit plantings be carried out with the highly effective Novosil. The solution of this anti-stress drug and biostimulant is diluted at the rate of 3 ml per 10 l of water. A good result is shown by foliar top dressing of plants with calcium nitrate or Kemira-Lux.
